FAQs about hotels in Canberra








Culture, Politics and Military Mix

A popular quiz question is: what’s the capital of Australia? If you answered Sydney or Melbourne then it’s time to discover the real answer – Canberra. With Parliament House at its core, Canberra fans out across both sides of Lake Burley Griffin to reveal a diverse mix of museums, restaurants and bars filled with curious tourists, political persons and public servants.

Canberra was created as a solution to Australia’s 2 largest cities squabbling over the right to become the national capital. The Limestone Plains region in New South Wales was chosen as the site for present day Canberra. It was a good choice for nature lovers as it is surrounded by bushland, mountain ranges and, more recently, wineries.

The National Gallery, National Museum and National Library of Australia highlight Canberra’s cultural riches. Other notable institutions to visit are the High Court of Australia and the National Film and Sound Archive that stockpiles a collection of Australia’s early radio, television and film history.

The military also plays a significant role here with many training facilities for the army such as the Australian Defence Force Academy. An unforgettable experience is attending the Anzac Day Dawn service at The Australian War Memorial.

Australia’s cultural capital with a political punch has many hotels, motels and apartments on Booking.com for that city trip, business jaunt or family holiday.

    I would say if a coloured map of Canberra could be available to people, A Map will full details including sites to see eg Resturants, parliament house, mountain drives, tours. I did find a map but the lettering was too small to read and insufficient information. The Name of the Apartments could be clearly shown.

    School holiday trip with the grandsons.

    School holiday trip with the grandsons. They loved the dinosaur museum and miniature village. So many places to visit, we needed more time. The work going on around the War Memorial made it a bit difficult to look around the grounds and parking was limited as it was the week before Anzac Day and many areas closed off. We decided to give it a miss.

    Paying for bus tickets was pain as no cash is taken - drivers are very generous letting us travel free but I dislike not paying my dues . Cash will be useable sometimes during 2024. From City Walk we walked to War Memorial - spent all day there. Poppy Cafe is good. Tickets free but book a slot on time. Slot is 2 hours but if u need more just ask one of the many room guides if they can extend your ticket. Grab a free tour of highlights when u arrive. Takes almost your 2 hours but guide will fix an extension. For seriously interested visitors (like us) they offered to give us all day. Also there is a separate Last Post ceremony every day. Needs separate ticket. Best view point is on 'balcony' overlooking Eternal Flame or in the open air (at balcony level) furthest away from Eternal Flame. It,s all free so buy a 5 AUD guide book or make a donation. As for Parliament visit (both places have airport style security checks) that also is deffo worth time. the Museum of Australia was different and interesting - several good cinema type films to watch. Visitor Centre in Commonwealth Park is a good first stop. Lovely lakeside walks decent cafe and very interesting story of how Canberra was built from scratch. Helpful staff and free leaflets. We could have filled 5 days rather than 3.

    We were disappointed. We went there for a weekend. There was no hop on hop off buses in the weekend, why not? It should be a lof of tourist in the weekend. We bought My way tickets instead, but the buses in Canberra have such small writing on the screen that says next stop that we couldn read it, and the volume was so low that we couldnt hear it in any of the buses (and we are NOT hard of hearing!). On top of that, the bus to the railway station didn,t go to the station. There was no message that said that, and no exception on the description of the stops. We went too far and realized it. Locals that helped us to find the way told us this happend all the time. If that is so, why don,t you fix the information?

Walkable to Alinga tram station, CMAG and other tourist spot can be visited by bus, there's bus station in front of this hotel.

    It's a pretty standard Best Western Hotel/Motel type of place - great for somewhere to sleep and refresh, but not a place that's particularly memorable. It served my purposes well, and was the cheapest property in Canberra for the night I needed a place to stay which is the main reason I booked. Location is suitable for those with their own transport and ideal if you're coming up from the south. Close to Manuka and the Parliamentary triangle too.

    Great hotel central in Canberra. Good size rooms, modern, clean and tidy. Next door to the German Club. The meals at the restaurants are good occasionally average. If you don't like it, it's only a short stroll to the German club. Wifi can be a bit slow during peak times. No buffet breakfast, you need to order, table service. Good size pool and small but well fitted out gym. Car park small but plenty on street parking. A good place to stay.

    The ambiance of the hotel is like a home away from home. After getting the hang of using the pin code to open the room door, it was very easy to enter the room without a room key. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious with simple furnishings. Great that there was ample space in the car park and it is free. Very convenient to have a Coles supermarket next door. Good value accommodation for Canberra especially if you have a car.

There are dedicated electric car destination chargers outside the entrance, and we hope to make use of those next time we visit!
